senate, you got to take into account the coattail factor for president obama as well. wisconsin, virginia. if he does well in virginia, tim kaine does well. if he does well in wisconsin, then tammy baldwin does well over tommy thompson. >> i want to get both of your take over something. big picture here. the "new york times" reporting this week on an exodus of moderates from congress. the headline, weighing the effect of an exit of centrists that was the headline. and in the article, quote, congressional redistricting, retirements of fed up lawmakers, and campaign spending by special interests is pushing out moderate members of both parties, leaving a shrinking core of consensus builders. isn't there already a lot of gridlock on the hill? and won't all of this just make it considerably worse, eamon? >> look, i think that we're actually at the tail end of kind of a generation long shift toward real polarization in the house of representatives in particular because of all this gerrymandering that we have seen. used to have southern democrats, and they over the past generation have

are going great. that was during a spot at a williamsburg obama for america campaign office. now here's the team helping the president. take a look, richard. david axlerod, one of his top advisors. senator john kerry playing the role of mitt romney. anita dunn being moderator candy crowley. national security advisor ben roads and marie harf. they were not part of the debate prep before. they are this time, why? specifically the issue of libya. as you know, this administration has been hammered over its handling of the libya situation. mitt romney preparing in boston. those who know mitt romney well say he is very comfortable in a town hall format. he practiced dozens of them. president obama, by contrast, has not really held a town hall in about nine months. a lot riding on this debate coming up on tuesday. >> nbc's kristen welker in virginia. let's bring in shawn spicer. communications's director for the republican national committee. thanks for being with us. >> you bet. >> governor romney has been in ohio 34 times since securing the gop nomination, 11 times since winning the f

? under president obama, we've lost over 500,000 manufacturing jobs. >> so, "the new york times" reporting today, senator, that the romney camp going after ohio with this new intensity, this new investment that they feel that they can get those people to come over to their team, especially after that solid performance at the debate. do you think, though, that mitt romney can make inroads talking about manufacturing with the unemployment rate now nationally below 7.8% and the fact that president obama was able to save the car manufacturing industry? >> i don't think so. if you talk to people in warren and youngstown, they know. one of every eight jobs are linked to the auto industry, of which the governor said let detroit go bankrupt. so, no one is going to fall for the trips and the traps of what the republicans are talking about. you know, this is the same man who said that he didn't care about the 47%, but now all of a sudden, he cares about the 47% because he is trying to get elected. so again, i believe that ohioans are going to stay strong. this is not the president's first

senator rob portman's family. just wrapped up in portsmouth where he talked about the presidential debate. he also hammered the obama campaign for continuing the use of "sesame street" references. >> in times like this, what is he talking about? saving big bird. when i'm president, i'm going to help save the american family and get good jobs for every american. . >> nbc's peter alexander is on the bus with the romney campaign, traveling to that 5:45 event. he is live on the phone with us. pete, this second rally of the day in ohio, i imagine we are probably going to hear a great deal of what we heard at the first, no doubt. >> craig, you're exactly right. the religious trying to hammer home these messages. as you heard in that rally a little earlier today with about 3500 fans, reporters in attendances, a series of attacks lines against china, accusing the president of basically failing to label china a currency manipulator for political purposes. these are big issues here in the state of ohio, where manufacturing is critical. just a short time ago we heard from mitt romney's runnin

senate race in the country, it's maybe a pure 50/50 race. and it does impact the control for the senate. democrats, republicans, if they'll take control of the senate, need to pick up four senate seats. that's assuming president obama wins re-election. three if president obama ends up losing. and that massachusetts case is key because it jumps those three and four numbers to four and five makes it harder for republicans to take control. >> the poll numbers have been tightening. also here, mark, another post watched senate race in the u.s. right now, that's missouri's claire mccaskill against todd akin featuring rape victims. let's take a look at a clip. >> i'm a and a pro-life mother and rape survival. in the hospital, i was offered emergency contraception because of my personal beliefs, i declined. here's what else i believe. no woman should be denied that choice. what todd akin said is offensive. i've never voted for claire mccaskill, but because of todd akin, i will now. >> so how does akin answer to that? >> it's very hard. the good news for todd akin is that missouri is a purchase

obama administration after a tense house hearing thursday. the senate will now begin their own investigation into the attack. joining me now is the former state department officer and former deputy director of the national security network. joel, glad to have you here. vice president biden criticized for saying he did not know u.s. officials in benghazi had even asked for more support. today, delaware attorney general beau biden coming to his father's defense. >> he was speaking for himself and the president, as you heard jay carney tell you in the briefing room the other day. >> do you think the average voters understands the difference between the state department knowing about those requests and the white house knowing? >> i think the average voter will understand this as this is communicated publicly, and it needs to be communicated. what can't happen is that there becomes a sense that this went to the president's desk. the president does not approve every request for funding for security at our consulates and our embassies overseas. certainly, the administration has been h

presence on the senate judiciary committee, his reputation as a centrist and the late-party switch from a republican to a democrat. president obama released a statement saying arlen specter was always a fighter, from his days stamping out corruption as a prosecutor in philadelphia, to his three decades of service in the senate. arlen was fiercely independent, never putting party or ideology ahead of the people he was chose ton serve. he brought the same toughness and determination to his personal struggles, using his own story to inspire others. joining me on the phone, andrea mitchell, nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent and andrea, i understand that the senator reached out to you just a few weeks ago? >> he reached out to me, craig we've known each over since the late '60s when was a young reporter in philadelphia. he reached out to me after all of those covering him through thick and thin and he bouts of illness and ups and downs in politics. he wanted to do one last interview. he wanted his legacy to be support for nih, for the national institutes of health. he was known for
